The sun is most often to blame for skin discoloration and premature aging and the total effects of sun damage may not be realized for years. Suntans and sunburns from early years may have very negative consequences later in life. It’s difficult to avoid sun exposure in the summer months and the effects of it can be seen in dark spots, uneven skin color and patchy hyperpigmentation.
UV induced hyperpigmentation from overexposure to the sun and tanning beds can cause an acute inflammation, known as erythema, and the subsequent overproduction of melanin results in an uneven distribution of pigment over the skins surface presenting as freckles and actinic keratosis.
It is absolutely possible to diminish the effects of too much summer sun and brighten, lift and fade skin discoloration. A series of professional peels that brighten the skin such as the Institut' DERMed Micro Lifting Peel - which contains a beautiful cocktail of non-irritating ingredients: Ascorbic Acid, Malic Acid, Papain Enzyme and Salicylic Acid, will slough off those dead unsightly skin cells and brighten and even the skin tone and texture. Regular exfoliation treatments will help to remove skin cells contianing abnormal amounts of pigment as well as help to prevent re-occuring hyperpigmentation.
Home care maintenance is a necessity to continue any results achieved from your professional treatment. A corrective serum such as the Institut' DERMed Chromabright Serum (chosen as a “Hot Product Pick” from the editors of American Spa Magazine), is a revolutionary hydroquinone-free serum formulated with Chromanyl Palmitate to lift and brighten dark spots and Glycolic Acid to even the skin tone and renew the skin’s surface for a radiant, luminous complexion. The Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Peel Oil in the formulation provides a natural source of Vitamin C for skin conditioning and the Hexylresorcinol not only brightens but also protects the skin against environmental stressors.
As always daily sun protection is a must!
